Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, or Physiatry, is the branch of medicine emphasizing the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of disorders that produce temporary or permanent functional impairment. Physiatrists provide a full spectrum of care. They restore function lost through injury, illness or disabling conditions. Physiatrists treat the entire person and not just the symptoms.
